Posted in thread: Issues with first AG Mash on 11-24-2013 at 11:29 PM
This is why I always heat up an extra couple gallons of water for whatever step I'm on, plus an
extra gallon or so boiling on the stove for heat emergencies.Your volume shouldn't be a
problem. As long...

Took the plunge and am in the middle of my first mash, using a 10 gal igloo cooler for a mash
tun. Based on the online calc I used heated strike water to 167 to hit a mash temp of 155. I

I just bottled a batch of extract I brewed on Memorial Day. I had enough left over for a couple
glasses after filling all my bottles. Even flat it's good. Fantastic nose, bananas and other

Posted in thread: Question about yeast for a beer on 04-07-2013 at 02:28 AM
So I was going to make a white IPA (think chain breaker from deschutes) but I accidentally
grabbed wyeasts 3191. I'm wondering what people's thoughts are on trying to use a sour yeast on
this. Should ...
Posted in thread: first time dry hop in primary on 02-14-2013 at 02:30 PM
In the past I've dry hopped in the secondary with pellets, but I'm thinking about trying whole
leaf hops instead on a beer that is just about ready. If I get whole leaf I'm concerned about
